Breaking News: Florida’s Legislature Has Proposed A New Bill That Will Likely CLOSE DOWN Florida’s Democratic Party
A new legislation proposed in the Florida legislature has been attracting a lot of controversy as the bill aims to dissolve the Florida Democratic Party.
According to a report by WESH-TV, the Senate Bill 1248, labeled as “The Ultimate Cancel Act,” does not directly mention Florida Democratic Party but it would make it essential for:
“The Florida Division of Elections to immediately cancel the filings of a political party, to include its registration and approved status as a political party, if the party’s platform has previously advocated for, or been in support of, slavery or involuntary servitude.”
The bill was proposed by Florida’s GOP Senator Blaise Ingoglia. The Republican Senator asserted that the Florida Democratic Party was formed during the pre-Civil War times and the party:
“adopted pro-slavery positions into their platforms’ during their national conventions in 1840, 1844, 1856, 1860, and 1864.”
The bill stated that any current registration of the Florida Democratic Party would revert to “no party affiliation.”
Moreover, the bill would also allow the Democratic Party to get reconstituted under a new name.
The bill explained:
“Any political party canceled pursuant to this subsection may reregister with the department by filing a certificate showing the name of the organization and the names and addresses of its current officers, including the members of its executive committee, accompanied by a completed uniform statewide voter registration application as specified in s. 97.052 for each of its current officers and members of its executive committee which reflects their affiliation with the proposed political party, and a copy of its constitution, bylaws, and rules and regulations.”
While talking with WESH-TV, Senator Ingoglia stated:
“For years now, leftist activists have been trying to ‘cancel’ people and companies for things they have said or done in the past. This includes the removal of statues and memorials and the renaming of buildings. Using this standard, it would be hypocritical not to cancel the Democrat Party itself for the same reason.”
“Some people want to have ‘uncomfortable conversations’ about certain subjects. Let’s have those conversations.”
